Broken Lies Review

Scientists predicted it would take seventy years for the Arctic Shelf to completely melt. In the end, it took less than five. We lost thirty percent of our land to the oceans and a big chunk of our structure to panic and anarchy.
The Melt crippled us.
But it was the Arctic Virus at the bottom of The Melt, trapped for millennia in the darkest depths of ice strata, that broke us. The real flood was the Living Corpses. A population of billions turned to soulless, rabid shells within months. That’s what washed away the human race as we know it.

Born into a post-apocalyptic world, Lake has grown up in the last city standing. Governed by what used to be the Queen’s Cold Stream Guard, vaccinated against the threat, life in Windsor City is both harsh and fair. The rules are designed to strengthen the city and ensure survival.
Lake’s future is planned out with opportunities and unfair advantages and then there’s Ash—her best friend and hopefully more. Things could be worse, considering she’s living past the end of days. And, sometimes, she could definitely do with being a better person, which was what drafting into the Guard for two years of service was supposed to be about.
But she has no idea what she’s signed up for. The city is more vulnerable than she’d ever imagined, on its knees at the mercy of a megalomaniac organisation, and she’s just been chosen to pay the price.



I was given this copy by Xpresso Tours for a review and i'm glad, i love books where the world ends and from that a new world begins. It has bits of teen drama/romance also but it didn't overshadow the plot.
lake and most of her friends sign up for the draft because they have no idea what to do after their school days are over ( which i think is stupid), Her mother let her go without saying anything ( i mean realistically she wouldn't just stand by) anyway the draft is like drafting into an army, but from what i read it seemed like a regular campy for the summer. It didn't scream real base to me.

I Enjoyed Ash and lake's relationship until he went and cheated, and that's not what really pissed me off. The author didn't give us an explanation as to why, i mean he just told lake that he loved her few days before and now he does this? Doesn't make any sense and he never explained why. 

To her credit lake doesn't just forgive him so easily and her best friend Ava has her back all the way through. i really liked Ava, she's loyal and feisty and a fighter, there are other characters but they really didn't stand out to me.

The ending could be called predictable, i mean reading it i knew the government wasn't telling them everything but still i was surprised about what they didn't tell them. They won't send the girls to war but use them as incentive and i really really am tired of damsel in distress stories and the way they will be used. Nope hate it but i will wait to see the next book to see if Ava and lake will fight back.

Besides those issues is till enjoyed it, i'm actually surprised i read the book all the way through. I Wouldn't recommend as a must read but if you're bored and need something to read then this is  it.

Overall 4 stars

In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s pas…

Review: P.S. I Like You

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay Contemporary makes me want to run away but there is a select few books i really liked and this one right here i think might be number one which is crazy okay.

I LOVE THIS BOOK AND THE CHARACTERS. I LOVE THE WHOLE CRAZY FAMILY

I FUCKING LOVE THE LYRICS AND LETTERS AND THE FUNNY BANTER.

I'm obsessed with writing poetry and songs and omg Kasie made Lily Abbot seem like a professional writer. The letter writing made me nostalgic for the old times.

I WANT TO SNUGGLE CADE NEXT TO MY HEART AND NEVER LET HIM GO.

I'M ATTRACTED TO HIM AND HIS WORDS AND VULNERABILITY.

You guys when it was that time in the story for them to do confessions and be cutesy, they damn delivered and i freaked out so hard at how fucking perfect and cute it was.

When Cade recited his letter to lily in the darkened classroom i couldn't handle myself, i was blushing and giggling and just a hot mess. when he said he knew it was her since thanksgiving i fell over…
